Slow pace in the most part of the movie.
Nice effects though.
Good concept, poorly executed.
Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
The fourth instalment of the interminable SPY KIDS saga was made almost a decade after the third. A new, younger pair of siblings are the central characters here, with the now-adult kids from the originals making extended cameos. Truth be told, ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD is the worst of the franchise yet. Expect bad guys with ridiculous high-pitched voices, repetitive fart jokes, and bad acting all around. The CGI isn't quite as terrible as in the third film but it's still pretty terrible and the whole thing feels like an overblown vapid mess. It says something when the funniest thing in the movie is a robotic dog voiced by Ricky Gervais, of all people.
I must say after taking my brother to see this in cinema, I was annoyed.First off I have been a fan of Spy kids since I was a child, always said I was going to be a spy like them. The first two was good... The third, was okay but this? It was a waste of my money and in my opinion ruined everything else.Even the 4th dimension was rubbish. I couldn't smell a thing, not matter how hard I would scratch it. Another pointless thing.All in all, I wouldn't recommend this movie for anyone, not even the young. My brother even hated and he usually loves these types of movies. It was a waste of time.
This movie is a very interesting thing indeed. Most people have given it terrible reviews.... And I completely understand why. This film has a lot of bad going for it. But it somehow still works.In my opinion, a bad film is a film that can't decently handle it's plot and pacing. The Room serves as a good example of a really bad film. Production comes second, which is what everyone is criticizing, and within reason.I think understanding this film all comes down to one thing: the director. Rodriguez is a good director and knows what he is doing (he made Sin City after all). The plot and script, while not to my taste (and with too many puns), work. Everything is tied up, the plot is consistent, and the lessons are learned without feeling forced.What makes the film really weird (emphasis on the word weird and not bad) is the production. The effects are really bad (and cheap) and the acting is just... Weird (there's no other word to describe it). The script is also just weird. Sort of "trippy" in a way. I felt like maybe the script writers were on some hardcore drugs at some points. Obviously, though, that's not the case. Rodriguez was just having fun making an over the top kid's movie. He didn't take it seriously, and neither should the critics. I think the most important thing to find out is do kids like the movie. Because if they do, Rodriguez definitely achieved his goal and this film was a success. Unfortunately I have no idea since my younger cousins haven't actually seen it.Why did I watch the film then, you ask. Curiosity on how one of my childhood movie sagas would continue. And in all honesty, while I haven't seen the originals in over a decade, I remember them a lot better. But maybe my expectations were just lower back then and this is a decent follow up.Either way, I give this film a 6 on 10. While the film has a strong script (as far as weird kid's movies scripts go), which makes the film watchable and definitely entertaining if the subject matter tickles your fancy, just everything else about it is a turn off for anyone but a kid. I would not recommend it to adults or teenagers. If you happen to have Netflix and are running out of good kids movies to occupy your child's mind, this isn't a bad choice. Otherwise, do not go out of your way to get this movie.
Jessica Alba plays a spy turned mom who is so sneaky no one in her family knows. WARNING:SPOILER Of course, by the end of the movie her husband and all the kids are involved, including the baby and the original Spykids are reunited.My family enjoyed the first three Spykids movies so of course we had to see the fourth. They shouldn't have bothered making the fourth. There is too much bathroom humor including poopy diaper and vomit bag ammo. It wasn't even funny.In fact, I didn't even think it was worth my time to post a review, but my older daughter said I should warn everyone. So this isn't just an adults opinion. My kids didn't like it either.
